Textbooks & Resources

Use this dropdown list to locate the textbooks and resources used in your courses. The resources below are marked as E-textbook, Courseware, Print, or Free Resource. Please be aware that some courses may use multiple types of resources. See below for a detailed explanation of each type.

Electronic Resources (E-textbooks, Courseware, and Free E-textbooks & Resources)

To reduce expenses and increase convenience, Franklin University is adopting electronic resources instead of traditional textbooks. Downloadable e-textbooks and courseware are especially convenient, since they can be accessed on a variety of devices, such as computers, tablets, and smartphones.

If a material is marked as a "Free Resource," it is available either as a free e-textbook through the Franklin University Library or found elsewhere online. These e-textbooks and materials are available at no charge to students and can be accessed by enrolled students just like any other course resource.
